    Funny you should post this, I watched David Gilmour live on Palladia last night and that song is pretty epic. Floyd was so much better with DG at the helm.

    Although I tend to agree withe Shine On, I would be remiss if I didn't nominate "In-A-Gadda-Da-Vida".

    Fun fact about that song: It was supposed to be "In the Garden of Eden". But they were trying to record it when the lead singer of Iron Butterfly was hammered, and it came out sounding like that. The group ran with it.

    Roger was the deep and disturbed one, they weren't nearly as good without David, and they weren't nearly as good without Roger although, they were better without Roger than they were without David if that makes sense.

    Was the Gilmour concert the one with Nash and Crosby and David Bowie?

    The correct answer is Total Eclipse of the Heart. Just when you think the song is winding down... BOOM five more minutes of awesome.


    I Would also consider pretty much any The Mars Volta album. The only reason they break the song into tracks is because of label pressure. The albums are all essentially 1 song with multiple movements.

    Yeah never really caught on with this one. Its ok but in my opinion not even close to some others, hell I'd put stranglehold many many places in front of that one.
